    Private hospitals can usually compensate you better than non-profit hospitals.

    Pros

    excellent benefits, amazing co-workers, but this is becoming less and less with good nurses leaving every day.

    Cons

    Almighty $$$$ oriented. raises are minimal if at all and even then they NEVER come in when promised. there's usually a delay of 1-2 times of saying the raises are coming, but everyone knows it will still be another month or two-but at least they are retroactive. approval time of filling empty positions is length so staffing short. would rather hire agency nurses than hire their own or invest in the good staff they have. training is minimal and and staff is usually lacking all of the credentials they are required to have for care, including BLS and competencies. Very top heavy in terms of administration who strangely are never without all of the staff they need and have minimal actual healthcare experience and don't even necessarily understand healthcare terms. Big push for bringing patients in and getting them out, but ZERO push for enhancing or providing safe care for patients while they are staying. no consideration given for whether or not staffing will support the number of patients on a given floor, expectations the same for safe care whether or not staffing numbers will support this

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter, because they've heard it all before. Nothing will change until Corporate Headquarters decides it's a priority.

    Pros

    Good benefits, generous time off/flex time policy, large stable company with room for advancement.

    Pros

    A lot of good people to work with below management levels.

    Cons

    Company cares more about its bottom line than it does patient outcomes.
    Benefits are below par. Employees are "cash cows"-must use benefits @ CHS facility.
    Low wages compared to other comparable facilities in the area
    High volume, short staffing -always!

    Advice to Management

    Improve pay and benefits to be more competitive and retain enough staff to give the patient
    a fighting chance of being discharged alive.

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about this place

    Cons

    Low pay even with experience. Health insurance is junk, you get quite large bills from using a CHS hospital, hard to have anything done without paying large amounts. Many of the nurses (mostly night shift) are lazy and only concerned with eating and playing on their phone. Horrible patient care!

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make a few "surprise visits" on the night shift and clean house. People are there for a paycheck and shift diff and could care less about the patients.

    Flexibility, salary is above average. I work with some really good people who all work a common team goal.

    Cons

    LACK OF TECHNOLOGY!!!!! CHS needs to spend capital on technology immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology!!!!!!!
